Brinyte changing brand name to ORCATORCH

As of 17 Feb 2014 Brinyte it seems is officially changing their name to Orcatorch and the new packaging with "ORCATORCH" logo will be available then. (new site)

 

here's an excerpt I took from their official letter:

We decide to use ORCATORCH instead of Brinyte for our own brand product line for couple of reasons...

The Brinyte OEM image does not conform to that of the high-end LED flashlight we want to create for our own brand products line.

Cry

 

Edit:  There's been a correction.  Brinyte will still be around as well as OrcaTorch. (see Post 10)

Uranusfire is an awesome name IMO. Id buy one even if it was crap, just for the name. I wouldnt spend a lot on it, but if it was under $10, and worked, Id buy it.

Yeah I agree.  The name change is unfortunate because it was a good name.

 

This is what I've gathered from Brinyte's full letter and from some people's perception of them...

There was a Brinyte light review on CPF.   It was an excellent review of the ED30.  It was very well done and probably took a lot of time.  But one of the comments over there was...

"on the budget oriented forums Brinyte (or Brynite wtf cares) is a well-known brand for years. and this model really looks like a budget light model. i don't know how much efforts and time was spent on putting together this review but to me these budget samples would not have been worth it. heck i didn't even read the review because i thought the samples are not worth it lma"  (post)

 

And so I think Brinyte wants to make another name for themselves.   One of high reputation in the flashaholic community. 

So because of all this I think they (as ORCATORCH) are going to raise their prices.  < That's just my thinking though.

 

I've come to really like their dive lights.  For my technical diving needs they always performed.   All their lights I reviewed I bought. And I was never given a single one, but still rated them very high.  To me they were the best deal out.

Where is a good place to buy Brinyte? My mother inlaw is after something for her car, AA, and I like the look of the ed30 for her. Id espe4cially like to get one before the price hike on the new name,and the old ones are gone. They sound like a decent Chinese light.

Brinyte ED30   Seems harder to find then I thought.  And more $$   Buy:  DHgateAli   there are a lot other less expensive AA lights - but non-dive lights are not my specialty.

 

I could be wrong about the price hike too.  I was just guessing.   Maybe the Brinyte name will stay on some products.  And others they consider "higher end" will have the ORCATORCH name?   Just not sure at this point.

Youre not wrong about them being a tad difficult to find, I did look around and search before posting that. It was actually your review of the DIv ‘?X?’ light that made me take notice of the brand. Then the link to the comment on the review of that ed30. The review sounded good too. They are pricey though considering their m15 is around $15. Im also looking at I think he Div05 as a pressie for a mate who dives. No night dives or caving, but he does do some fossicking with a coil and occasional fishing during daylight hours. He use s a plastic one now. I went with the Div05 as it runs a single Li ion so no issues of unbalanced batteries underwater. I think it might be able to run on 3 c cells too with a tube. At least one of the Div series can run 3 C’s.

I've been corrected from OrcaTorch, which is good.   Here's what they said...
Cindy Zhou (Sales and marketing manager) wrote:
I think there is misunderstanding...

Brinyte is a trademark belong to Shenzhen Yeguang Technology.  They mainly offer OEM services to other companies.  So you can find their models in the market with other companies logo, such as Dive Right in Scuba (DRIS).
 
In last year, Shenzhen Yeguang Technology established a brand department to develop a new products line,all the models are different with OEM models and only sold with Brinyte logo,don't accept other company's logo.  But finally they decide to quit to use Brinyte as the brand name, because the customer can't distinguish the two departments products and two business concept.

So they register a new trademark OrcaTorch and new company for their own brand product line, and the Brinyte trademark will continue to be used by OEM department.

Now OrcaTorch belongs to OrcaTorch Technology Limited, all the OrcaTorch models are newly developed and manufactured by themselves, and they don't print other companies logo on their existing product line.  Please check all the OrcaTorch flashlight models in their website www.orcatorch.com.
 
So OrcaTorch and Brinyte are different company with different products, different business strategy.

 
www.orcatorch.com is the only official website of OrcaTorch.

Never had an ES, but I have had several Brinyte ED10, and they are fine. Can run 16340 or lithium primary CR123. I would expect them to be OK as Brinyte seem to make a reasonable product. I also have some ED30s too. These are 2xAA, or a single 14500, extension tube is included along with a little thin leather(ish maybe) holster. Direct from Brinyte these are under $30. Both ED versions are tailclicky lights.

here is a quick search:

http://www.alibaba.com/trade/search?fsb=y&IndexArea=product_en&CatId=&SearchText=Brinyte+ED30

if you message Alibaba then ask the cost shipped to your address.

The ED30 is a nice light. I prefer the ED10 myself, but I had two of the 30s and 3 of the 10s. My mother in law took a 30 for the car with a pair of Eneloops, and a 10 for beside the bed at night and a mate took an ED10. I carry a 10 in rotation with my Sunwayman V11R.

They are not a $60 light though (as in one offering from an AliExp link above), not even a $40 light IMO. $20-25 is about the price point I think is reasonable but I didnt pay that for mine. Mine were direct from the maker, like the link below, around $9 each plus post was I think $12 for all 5, I had them in under 14 days.

The alibaba link has them at $9 – 12, good price there and a good find.

The best price I’ve found on Aliexpress is here: Brinyte ED30 shipped. I’ve ask the seller if they are real Brinyte or clone and he said: “This torch is really brinyte flashlight. We are the Online store of brinyte, we have professional factory.
For this ED30 flashlight, we are doing clearance sell on it. So it is only $19.88”
And it’s a real good price.

A very f***g great bargain! But….I always know that from Alibaba only retailer or so on can buy…I’m wrong?

I have never bought from Alibaba so cant say, but this one offers a trial order. Wink It appears you can buy 1 light if required. Postage will not be free though. I found it cheap enough with 5 lights. But ask them for a quote on one light.

Shenzen Yeguang as found in the $9-12 light is the maker of the light. The $9 version looks like it is AA only (going by the specification sheet), while the $12 light has an extension tube to use 2 AA, or a 14500. They might not use the same driver, and the lack of the extension tube and different driver make up the price difference. They are from the same place.

This is the one Id go with http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Brinyte-CREE-aluminum-dry-battery-source_60023205324.html

Thank you very much, very kindly Smile

I’ve talked today, online chat, and when she said: “how many pieces of flashlight do you want to order?” I said…“ehm…just one, for sample”, 30 seconds of silence, after that she said “OK”!! Party

But ask me 12$+1$ for Alibaba for shipping… :~ So, just for 1 flashlight it’s not a good deal (on aliexpress it’s 19,88$ shipped). I’m thinking to buy Brinyte ED10 too, to halve the cost. Final cost will be 32,63$ but no tracking, standard shipping, and more than 20 days to arrive at my door (as always, 30/40 days later). I don’t know… Sad

To Brinyte or not to Brinyte, that’s the question.
It seems there is a (Sysmax like) dispute going on between a trading company and a production company.

What’s in a name.
I remember that Fiat, in one of it’s countless attempt to build something bigger than a backpack, came up with the CROMA.
That might be a fine name for a car, in Latin or so, but over here it’s also a well known name for (a B-brand of) baking-fat.
The first salesreps who drove that car became the laughingstock of their community.

Any name in itself means nothing to start with, it can become a NAME when it is known for quality, good products, service, et cetera.
A good product does not get any better by rebadging it. But it will get more expensive when there’s a blue chip name on that badge.
Imho the first focus of Orcatorch should be trying to regain the lost brand-value of that move.

I sure hope they won’t discontinue their 2*CR2 MT-G2 CW Sardinite.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
